Keep Dust Dander and Mold Out
Cleaning the debris from around your outdoor unit on a regular basis is also a good preventative measure to improving your indoor air quality. The outdoor unit is going to pull anything close to it into your home. It’s the same with your indoor unit. Sweep, dust, and vacuum around that area to keep out the dust and airborne particles.
Mold can do more than just make your allergies act up and give you bad indoor air quality. It can make you sick. Mold thrives on moisture and humidity. There are several areas within your HVAC unit that hold both elements. You should always check your condensation drip pan and drain. Also check the air handler, evaporator coils and air ducts. If you see mold you should remove it. If it is large amounts of mold it might be better to contact a professional.
It is so important that you keep your HVAC System cleaned and maintained on a regular basis. It is the only way to keep those allergens from spreading throughout your home and improve your indoor air quality. Your HVAC system can make a tremendous difference when it comes to allergies and indoor air quality.
